Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Glenn. Sorry this has taken so long. The link actually expired. We had an amazing time celebrating our anniversary in your home. Everything was perfect. I was blown away by the fact you left nothing out. You thought of everything to make it such an enjoyable stay. Will definitely recommend your home for sure. Thank you again for a wonderful time.

Sincerely,
Oct 2017

Besutiful home, quiet surroundings, awesome sea shell findings.

  • 5 of 5

This home is very welcoming from the moment you walk in, very well decorated but not too much for little hands to get to. Awesome views, quiet atmosphere, and on low tide you can find great sea shells.

Cottage was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed taking walks on the beach finding shells. We only stayed 3 nights that was a huge mistake! We will be back and stay longer. The kitchen was perfect for the 4 of us to cook together. I would highly recommend this for a quiet get a way.

This house was truly a HOME away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We are experienced VRBO renters, and there is "Excellence" which is a pleasantly occasional experience, and then there is -Perfection-, which is very rare.

This house is Perfection.

The pictures don't really reveal the charm of this gem.

The location is 'out of the way' , in a sparsely populated coastal region on Delaware Bay, and there is not a lot to do in Milford, but if you are into nature, this house is for you. There is a large inviting deck with a hot tub and after a few broad steps down, and 30 paces over the dunes, you are on a wide, unspoiled beach.

The interior is stunning; spotless, airy, sunny, and seductively welcoming, with great views of the beach from every window on the east side, and of the wild estuary on the west side.

We cook, and the kitchen is one of the best, and most-sensibly-provisioned we've ever seen. Everything worked. This is especially important because the house is not in an area with a lot of restaurants. The washer & dryer provided are high quality and the laundry room is spacious and convenient.

The beds were high-quality too, and very comfortable. The bathrooms are modern and immaculate. There are bright cozy nooks for reading (or just napping). It was cold & rainy for part of our stay and nobody really even noticed. We just can't find a substantive flaw to quibble about. There are two large and very diverse wildlife refuges nearby, and if you're into birding this is a 5-star luxurious base-camp. We are already trying to figure out how to come back. Heck! we'd love to retire there and it is fully set up to do so. Highest Possible Recommendation! Rent This House!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice & everything worked even the ice maker. The kitchen had anything you could need for cooking with plenty of silverware, dishes and glasses. Beds were very comfortable with more than enough linens, pillows and towels. Nice view of the bay and the house had lots of window to let in the sunlight. The location was only 20 minutes from Lewes, Rehobeth, and restaurants and shopping. Nice, comfortable house, we enjoyed our stay.
